Windsor Castle, where the royal wedding and the following reception will take place on May 19th.

With the Royal Wedding just a few days away, details are emerging at a feverish pace. While we already knew the flavors of the cake and the wine to be served, thanks to social media posts by Mark Flanagan — head chef at Windsor Castle — we now have our closest look yet at the food that will be served this Saturday on the big day.

According to Chef Flanagan, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been very involved in menu planning and have had several tastings. And while we don’t know the complete menu, we can now be sure it will include a lot of fresh, healthy produce from the local English countryside.

"We know the couple wanted us to make sure we used all of the local seasonal produce as much as possible throughout their menu, and this recent good weather is really helping us to achieve that," Flanagan said, according to Express UK.

This local seasonal produce will include asparagus, potatoes, tomatoes, and spring peas, and in even more exciting news, a lot of this fresh veg is coming directly from Her Majesty's estate at Windsor! "We’ve really just been trying to let the ingredients stand proud within the dishes. There’s no experimentation on Saturday whatsoever, tried and tested and predominantly classics," the chef was quoted as saying.

These dishes are being prepared cocktail party-style, versus a traditional sit-down dinner. There will be "bowl dishes" so that guests will be able to eat standing up.

Before things sound too healthy though, pictures shared reveal the pastry chefs will also be preparing a traditional Windsor Castle dessert — and one of the Queen’s favorites — chocolate truffles. Kensington Palace has revealed they are also working on "bite-sized crème brûlée, biscuits with mango panna cotta topping and yellow macaroons," for the reception.

With all that going on, will guests have room for the lemon elderflower wedding cake and ice cream trucks also known to be on the menu? Hope they come hungry!
